Silk and Satin... progress

21. March 2012 12:34 by Jobo | 0 Comments

I?ve been working away on my little piles of silk and satin angora... trying to at least spin a handful each day of one or the other.  It feels most days like I don?t get much accomplished, but as you can see, the spindles are filling up over time.  I have a previous cop of the angora (top) already wound off onto a cardboard tube waiting for enough silk (bottom) to pair it up with.  And I also did a cop of each and made a plying ball (below) so I can keep on knitting when I have time.

I can?t get over the shine from this thread.  ( I keep wanting to call it yarn... but quite honestly, it?s too fine to ever be called a yarn)  Even though this little plying ball looks tiny... when the winding was complete, there was 185 yards therein! 

The colors really do match perfectly too :)
